This is a peeve post. I guess I'm just in a mood today.

Each time I log in to Linkshare my mailbox is full of program solicitations from merchants. For the most part they are not targeted to my site categories, and when I follow up with the merchants, many do not accept New York affiliates.

As Mark mentioned in another thread (, CJ charges merchants by the number of emails they send. Does Linkshare? Wouldn't it make sense to let merchants sort by location and/or site catetgory to choose affiliates to blast? Or, worse, if they have that capability, why do they broadcast willy nilly?
(That word lightened my mood )
